The following tutorial outlines how to edit the logo with Adobe® Fireworks CS4. Fireworks is required for logo editing. CS3 can be used for image source editing.
You will want to install the provided fonts before proceeding to edit in Fireworks, if you wish to use the same font for your logo editing.
Editing in Adobe® Fireworks CS4
Step 1 – Open the File
Open the logo-source.png file in Adobe® Fireworks.
Focus on the right column, titled Layers. Select the Web layers directory and click the eye icon to the left of the logo slice (the green object). This will make the slice invisible so you can edit the file.
Step 2 – Text/Slogan/Icon Editing
Double click on the logo text. Now you can edit the text of logo to your choosing.
Now, select and disable the icon if necessary. Or replace with an alternative vector.
Step 3 – Slice Modification
Reactivate the Slice in the Web Layers column, this will place a green rectangle over the logo image. Change the size of the slice (or move it) to match the new size if applicable.
Step 4 – Export
Now you will want to export the logo. Right click on the image slice and select Exported Selected Slices… from the contextual menu. Proceed to export it to your computer for uploading.
Step 5 – Multiple Frames/States
If there are multiple logos for a template, they are located in Frames or States within Fireworks.
Once you have successfully edited then exported your new logo, you will need to upload it to your server. This process is best done via a FTP client such as Filezilla
Open your FTP client on your local computer.
Login to your web server where Tachyon is installed.
Navigate to the /wp-content/themes/rt_tachyon_wp/images/logo/light/dark/ directory.
Upload logo.png (and any other logo related images) to this directory (You may need to browse on the local panel in the FTP client to find where you have exported your logo).
Clear your browser cache before viewing such as using the keyboard commands on Windows, Ctrl+F5.
Ensure that you are uploading the correct logo to avoid confusion if it does not change. Also take into account hosting permissions. Sometimes, hosts which are not designed for WordPress may have permissions not suited for the setup, thus, the upload will not be complete. In this case, contact your hosting provider.
